The benefits to our mental health that can be gained from spending time outside in nature are well documented. Studies have shown that contact with natural environments can help with depression and anxiety as well as contributing to our over all well being.
With this in mind, I have been determined to continue to make the most of our beautiful Cornish landscape, despite the recent stormy weather. Horizontal rain and storm force winds have made my usual coastal haunts more dramatic, but less than comfortable. Often I have sought shelter from more protected inland options- with the benefit of discovering some great new places. A lesson from nature that difficulty can sometimes lead to change.
